Maybe the title is not good but what I want to know what is the linux file ending names.
Example windows is .exe and .com
Mac is .bin and used to be .hqx
does anybody know what it is for linux.
That will be great.

When you download a program for Linux, is usually in an archive format
with a double extension like *.tar.gz or *.tar.bz2. I believe these are
known as "archived tarball files" or something like that. These files
contain the necessary executables and documentation, including
instructions on how to install or compile the application.
Meanwhile, when you download a program to run on Mac OS X, which is
also based on Unix, sometimes it will have a *.dmg.gz double extension
or a *.dmg.bin double extension. These files are archived, in a similar
way to those archived for Linux, and when they're unpacked, they're
referred to as "self mounting disk images", as they appear on the
desktop as though they are actually disks, but they're really
just disk images, containing all of the relevant executable,
files, and all of the necessary documentation . . .
